Nintendo has revealed their E3 2018 plans

by Oliver BrandtApril 27, 2018

It’s safe to say that Nintendo absolutely killed it at last year’s E3, with a tonne of exciting announcements followed by days of streaming, showing off gameplay for many of the recently announced games. It looks like 2018 will be no different.

Nintendo have revealed their schedule for E3 2018, and it’s looking pretty exciting. Nintendo will kick off E3 with their usual video presentation, where it’s promised that we’ll get a look at the upcoming Nintendo Switch titles for 2018, including the new Super Smash Bros. game.

After that, they’ll jump right into the three-day-long Treehouse Live stream, which will show off gameplay with a bunch of Treehouse members and game developers, once again starting with Super Smash Bros. The Smash Bros Invitational tournament will take place in the evening of the presentation, shortly after the Splatoon 2 World Championship Finals.

We’ve put together a handy little guide to the relevant times in Australia, though just a warning, it seems a lot of this is happening very early in the morning for us.

      +1 to this. I came so close to buying XX when I was lucky enough to visit Japan recently, but I’m not well versed enough in the series yet to get by without English text!

    I want to be proven wrong but I think E3 is going to be like 2015…stop-gap first party titles and their heavy hitters like pokemon and metroid prime 4 are 2019. Happy to be surprised but with Smash hogging the spotlight, it looks like it’ll be fire emblem and yoshi to carry the back end of 2018.
